What would Lion Jesus do for a Klondike bar?

eavesdrop
verb
1. To listen secretly to what other people are saying.Merriam-Webster1
2. How to cop out of writing a real blog post in one easy step. – The Nut


– overheard on a city bus through the fine art of sticking my ears where they weren’t invited –

“…and all I could think of was Narnia.”

“Uh-huh…wait, what?”

“You know, the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe?”

“Yeah, but what about it?”

“Well the younger brother, he’s so nuts for Turkish Delight that he sells his entire family out for it, right? So when Mark was like, ‘Hey, someone gave me this box of Turkish Delight, do you want some?’ I was like, “Sweet!” all expecting it to be amazing. But it was just meh, you know?  All I could think was that kid screwed over his brother and sisters for this stuff and it’s not even that great of a dessert.”

“Yeah, it’s just, like, flavored gelatin, right?”

“Something like that. Definitely not worth betraying anyone over, anyway.”

“Yeah.”

*pause*

“I’d sell out my family for cheesecake.”

“Oh my god, yes. That’s a way better deal.”

“Of course…it would have to be a really good cheesecake.”

“Of course. And it would have to be a whole cheesecake. Like, I’m not double-crossing my family over just one slice of cheesecake, you know?”

“No, that’d just be silly. Always demand a full cheesecake.”

“Damn straight.”

  1. I can get cheesecake at the grocery store. It may not be the best cheesecake but there’s not a huge difference between the best cheesecake I’ve ever had and the worst.
    Now, creme brulee, on the other hand, has to be specially made and requires open flame in its preparation.
    And they should have sent Eustace to Constantinople. Wait, it’s Istanbul, not Constantinople. Why’d Constantinople get the works? That’s nobody’s business but the Turks’.

    • Don’t know about the States, ’cause I’m a Canuck.;) But there’s a cafe just down the street from me that sells the best cheesecake I’ve ever had in my life. Walking past it without going in and ordering a slice is the hardest part of my day.
